Advising Public Charities on Compliance with the Internal Revenue Code

1h 1m

Created on March 25, 2019




The subset of section 501(c)(3) organizations known as public charities is closely regulated by the Internal Revenue Code. From qualifying for public charity status to managing revenue-generating activities without jeopardizing that exemption, the Code governs and informs the decisions of public charities. Other issues that arise for public charities, for which understanding the rules under the Internal Revenue Code is paramount, include lobbying activity and transactions with insiders. These transactions can include compensation for employees, officers, and directors, and every public charity is likely to face these rules at some point. This program will review the relevant provisions of the Code as they apply to public charities.

The course, taught by Anne Gerson, counsel in Venable's Non-profit practice, will provide an in-depth look at these issues. Attorneys will come away with a practical understanding of how to apply these laws in the day-to-day functions of a public charity.
